Boyler, I appreciate your insights most of the time, even though you seemingly want to acquire every available player that isnt currently in an NYR jersey. But I think the comments above encapsulates that approach pretty well. When you watch somebody play every single game, it makes it much easier to take their performance for granted and focus on the flaws in their game. Those things that "teams look and see" are real. Ryan O'Reilly = Patrice Bergeron is not.

Its a more educated and better presented argument on your part, but at its heart, its still really just a form of shiny new toy syndrome.
